Dear All:


Elizabeth Clemants and Alex Yaroslavsky are getting ready for their January mediation training intensive, to take place over five days,  January 10th - 14th , 2011 in TriBeCa, NYC.

Who should take the course?

The course is designed for individuals who would like to explore mediation as a new career, add mediation to their menu of professional services as well as develop a solid understanding of mediation skills and process.

What's different about our training?

The training is highly interactive and experiential.  Elizabeth and Alex have developed our training incorporating their combined 30+ years of mediation experience to ensure that participants not only learn the materials, but also enjoy the training.  Throughout the training participants have several opportunities to practice the skills with the instructors and other participants.

What should you expect after completing the course?

After completing the course, participants will know their own conflict resolution style, its strengths and challenges.  Participants will also develop a new set of tools to greatly extend their ability to deal with conflict and develop a solid foundation in mediation allowing them to lead a mediation process from start to finish.


Elizabeth Clemants is certified by the NY State Unified Court System’s Community Dispute Resolution Centers Program to provide Basic Mediation Training.  After completing this course, you may be eligible to participate in an apprenticeship and volunteer with Safe Horizon (Manhattan & Brooklyn) and/or Community Mediation Services (Queens). Final acceptance to an apprenticeship or to the volunteer panel is at the discretion of Safe Horizon and/or Community Mediation Services.

Attorneys may also be eligible to receive up to four CLE ethics credits in accordance with the requirements of the New York State Continuing Legal Education Board (pending approval).


This program also meets and exceeds the minimum basic mediation training requirements of New Jersey.  Participants who successfully complete this training will be eligible to mediate in New Jersey (pursuant to R. 1:40-12) and are encouraged to visit the NJ Judiciary's Web site: for more information.
